In “Hungry are the Damned,” the Simpsons are abducted by aliens Kang, Kodos, and Serak the Preparer. They are incredibly hospitable, and Lisa gets suspicious after they continue to weigh and feed them. Lisa found a book, “How to Cook Humans,” but it had space dust on it and read “How to Cook for Forty Humans.” So the Simpsons are booted back to Earth for being untrusting.
